    I have tickets printed with barcode. When i scan that code is placed in a
    text box of my form. How can i read from the scanner and put it in a specific
    text box?

    Or i directly want to insert into database. This is my actual requirement.

    I tried at many sites. I didnt get reply. I am expecting the answer here.

    Thanx in advance

    This is no website, but a usenet group, so you could be in luck.

    1 Do you want to do this on a client
    2 that runs under windows [what?XP?]
    3 [browser/wscript?}
    4 connected to the server?
    5 [via internet/lan?]
    6 and the server runs asp?
    7 what/where is the output of your barcode reader?

    The ASP part is on topic here.

    You can't do that with ASP classic, it's handled client-side. As long
    as the focus is on the text input when scanned, it drops into the
    field automatically. You'd need a Submit button or to use a
    client-side submit process, such as Javascript or ActiveX input to
    send it to the server for processing into the database.

    Check client-side groups for setting the focus on a form.

    Thak you all for replying. Yes, i want to run it in intranet site using
    ASP. Yea, once it is scanned, i want to split into different parts(job,
    empid, operation_no)
    and placed in the corr form fields. Then i click submit button to insert
    into database.
    Here, i want to save time for data entry. Means, i dont want to click submit
    button for every code scanned. After i scan all the codes then i click
    submit. How can i generate form which is filled with scanned barcode. Like

    Thanx again

    <script language="javascript">
    var strlist = "";

    function addBarcode(){
    if(strlist.length > 1){
    strlist = strlist + ",";
    strlist = strlist + form1.barcode.value;
    form1.barcode.value = "";
    list.innerHTML = strlist;

    function kH(e) {
    var pK = document.all? window.event.keyCode:e.which;
    if(pK != 13){
    return pK != 13;
    return pK != 13;
    document.onkeypress = kH;
    if (document.layers) document.captureEvents(Event.KEYPRESS);

    function setFocus(){
